Hi all, apologies for the lateness of this post, but apparently, according to blogger I am an impostor! I mean seriously, let me sign on already!
Tantrum aside I'm obviously in, and I thought today I'd give you a brief update on my 'going's on'. Yes, I am still a serial dieter with thighs endlessly on the attack. I still talk a whole lot of shit and slink around in the dead of night looking for any form of chocolate. On the upside, although my techtardian ways are well know due to my inability to reply to any comments left on my posts or even the know-how to create my own damn button, I have gotten a little bit clevy this week.
I mastered the freaking widget!
As you may have noticed I have some new 'Follow me' buttons on the left hand side. Granted I didn't make them, I merely 'borrowed' them and have been advised that you must use them immediately as not following me will almost certainly result in chlamydia. Anyone who immediately follows me will naturally remain STD free. If symptoms should persist, besides seeing a doctor, I'd suggest telling your friends how awesome my books and blog is.
Just a suggestion.
I've also managed to upload some widgets from Goodreads. I've actually challenged myself to read 50 books this year. I can't really see that happening, but since I have recently declared there will be more book reviews on the blog, I thought I'd better actually read a few books. Makes sense.
Apart from my little widget know-how. I'm currently working my second book trailer for the next book in The Hunted Series - The Damned. So far it's coming along well - more action, more moving pictures, and definitely a whole lot more skill. I'll paste the link below so you can view the first trailer. (Yes, I can actually do this!)

I'm also having a 250 follower give away! Three copies of my book are going to be sent anywhere worldwide to the lucky winners and they will be paperback versions, not e-books! So help spread the word while you're at it and click on the link if you want to be in with a chance to win (Yes, I can do this too).
Well that's it. Nothing else overly exciting is going on. I didn't become president (shocking). I didn't attempt assassination on Spence Pratt (disappointing). I did however gain half a kilo this week (expected).
Have a good one everyone,

Kristy :)

Follow Friday #21

Happy Friday everyone!
Yes, it’s that time of week again where bloggers unite to participate in the Follow Friday venture. The idea behind #FF is to promote traffic to your own blog, make new friends with other like-minded bloggers and discuss new and interesting topics each week.
Participating is simple. First you need to follow my blog because I’m totally awesome, then you can follow me on Twitter @kristyberridge (actually you don’t have to do this, it’s wishful thinking), but do follow my blog or assassins will get you …
My Bedroom
Then you must follow our illustrious hosts Rachel of and Alison of If you want more details on how to enter your own blog in the follow and hop, all directions are on their webpages
Now, once you’ve followed, check out my answer to this week’s questions and don’t forget to leave a comment so I can do the right thing and follow you back!

My Living Room
This week's question is activity! Take a picture or describe where you love to read the most!

Answer: I have two places. If I'm really tired and know I'm going to likely face plant any solid object within the next hour, I tend to read in my snugly custom made bed. The second place is on the couch in my living room. There's an air conditioner in there that's great during summer and I get to stretch out and still yell at my husband should the mood take me.

Happy Friday all!

Kristy ;)

250 Follower Giveaway!

Hey everyone! I'm so close to 250 followers on the blog that I thought I'd do another giveaway! Basically I will be giving away three copies of my book The Hunted in celebration of the fact that I will be releasing the second book in the series, The Damned in the up and coming months.
I appreciate all the support you've all shown me so far, so here's hoping you like my book too if you are a winner!

To enter, just click on the READ MORE text at the bottom of this page.

Elena Manory is by no means an ordinary teenage girl. Being born with the ability to heal herself from any injury, and with the knowledge that on her eighteenth birthday she will become a Vampire, Elena is aware that she is more than a little different from other girls her age.
It isn’t until she meets William Granville, an alluring and impossibly handsome vampire, that she begins to question her destiny and what secrets the Institute of Magical Intervention and her adopted family have withheld—secrets that could change the fates of not only her own life, but of the lives of all the immortals.
As events spiral out of control, William may be the only person Elena can place her trust in. He, and Elena’s magical family, must fight to save her, joining forces to defeat a common, deadly foe. For William, it is his chance to save the girl that he has searched eternity to find.
